EVERYPlant Spiny Scale Tree 09 --15 Models-- 3D model
Name: Spiny Scale Tree
Scientific: Lepidodendron aculeatum
This Variation: 9 of 12
Habitat: Extinct tree-sized, tree-like plant from the Carboniferous Period to the late Triassic (about 360 to 205 million years ago).
Range: Fossils have been found extensively throughout the world.
Notes: Though superficially it resembled a tree, this plant was most closely related to modern quillworts, meaning it wasn't a true tree. As it grew its central stem eventually split into exactly two branches, and then each branch further split into exactly two more as the plant continued to mature; further dichotomical branching occured until the plant reached full maturity. At the ends of its branches were oval-shaped cones. As the plant grew it shed its lower leaves which resulted in the scar-pattern found on it's stem and branches which gives it its name of scale tree.
Included in this Package: 15 models in total
- Standard -- 599,858 polygons -- 25.88m tall. Fully mature and in relative health. Useable in most scenes and applications.
- Distressed -- 609,434 polygons -- 25.88m tall. Showing an increased level of foliage damage and disease, as well as missing and broken fronds.
- Unhealthy -- 576,501 polygons -- 25.86m tall. In a relatively poor state with much of its foliage missing or diseased.
- Dying -- 231,049 polygons -- 25.87m tall. Plant is just hanging onto life and showing only unhealthy and diseased foliage.
- Dead -- 145,170 polygons -- 23.41m tall. Showing only dead foliage.
- Uprooted -- 169,555 polygons -- 7.4m tall. Dead or dying plant that has fallen onto it's side.
- Ancient -- 1,016,989 polygons -- 29.23m tall. A very old plant showing further branching.
- Young Mature -- 501,226 polygons -- 22.79m tall. Fully matured but not at its full height yet.
- Young -- 133,610 polygons -- 12.52m tall. Smaller plant some half way through it's maturing cycle.
- Immature -- 12,745 polygons -- 4.27m tall. Plant is small and hasn't reached its mature aspect, it's stem has not yet split.
- Sapling -- 8,806 polygons -- 2.41m tall. Very small and young plant.
- No Fruit -- 568,960 polygons -- 25.88m tall. Same as the Standard model but the fruiting spore-pods are not present.
- Less Fruit -- 585,798 polygons -- 25.88m tall. Same as the Standard model but with less fruiting spore-pods.
- More Fruit -- 602,372 polygons -- 25.88m tall. Same as the Standard model but with more fruiting spore-pods.
- Simplified -- 282,560 polygons -- 25.82m tall. Same as the Standard model but without displacement. Has less polygons and is intended for mid or distant renders.
Re-meshing available upon request, eg adaptive mesh for lower poly count (this is the default setting and is as supplied), uniform mesh for easier editing, strict quads, tris, mixed, poly increase or decrease, etc. No charge to existing customers of the product.
Many other modifications to models also available upon request. No charge to existing customers of the product.
The textures included in this pack are mainly 4k (4096x4096) to cater for detailed renders, this is the default map size and is included in each of the file format download files, no need for seperate downloads. However these may be slow to load or render on some system and may not be necessary in all situations. To allow for this, medium 2k, small 1k, and tiny <1k textures are also available and may be downloaded alongside the various model formats. Different texture sizes can simply be swapped in or out by copying the Maps sub-folder; no need to manipulate the materials in your editor. Please use whichever best suits your system and needs.
EVERYPlant has a mission ... which is to model every plant species in the world (plus some extinct, fantasy and sci-fi variations as well)! Okay, maybe not every plant, but at least the identifiably different species which have at least a common name! Want to keep track on how that's going? You can find the details at our facebook page.
